Perfect transition from articulate sticking to wide open crashing while never loosing the stick definition. Clear sticking and a present, but not overpowering, bell. Outstanding versatile ride cymbal.
The Transition Ride by Meinl has a natural, slightly polished top for clear articulation and a present but not overpowering bell. The bottom is lathed up to the bell, which enables a quick, shimmery crash with a rapid decay. This enables a “transition” back to a dry, articulate ride. The bottom also offers a brilliant finish which allows the ride to move through various dynamic levels with control over the degree of clarity and level of wash.
A ride cymbal that easily transfers from ride to crash and back.
